develop ELT students’ listening and pronunciation skills. It focuses on
listening sub-skills such as understanding the essence of phonetics and will
provide practice in taking notes, making predictions, accessing specific and
detailed information, and inferring meaning from context. ELT students will
also be engaged in listening to and watching different accents from different
areas, focusing on authentic listening materials.
